    Elvis Presley

    The King died on his throne exactly 28 years ago. Bookmakers have revealed that wagers have all but dried up from fans betting that Elvis Presley is still alive. Over the years bookmakers William Hill have taken thousands of bets that Elvis will be found alive, but in the last year fans have stopped placing bets. Bookmakers have now lengthened the odds of Elvis being found alive from 100/1 to 1000/1. "The biggest odds we have ever given was a Elvis related bet, we offered 14 million to one that Elvis will crash land a UFO into Loch Ness hitting the monster," said bookmaker Rupert Adams. "It is perhaps the end of an era, where even his most ardent fans no longer believe that Elvis could have remained hidden for so long."

    The Death Penalty

    The USA is set to execute the 1000th person since the death penalty was reintroduced in 1976. What do you think about capital punishment? Personally I'm against it, because miscarriages of justice can occur. A punishment should act as a deterrent, and there's no good evidence that the death penalty does this. It should also attempt to rehabilitate the offender - which execution clearly can't do.
  3. From the aptly named Sky News .... two plane crashes. http://www.sky.com/skynews/article/0,,30000-1192375,00.html http://www.sky.com/skynews/article/0,,30000-1192401,00.html My Mum says that these things always come in threes.

    Tennis players

    I saw an old biddy on TV the other day - she's 99 & won Wimbledon in 1931. It made me wonder if any old tennis players are facing match point. Rod Laver & Ken Rosewall must both be getting on a bit.
  5. Are you sick of Christmas already? What do you think of Christmas stuff appearing in the shops in October? Anything Christmas-related that you'd like to have a good rant about? Do you believe in Santa Claus?

    Harry Potter

    No-one can have escaped the fact that a new Harry Potter book is about to go on sale. http://www.sky.com/skynews/article/0,,30000-13387297,00.html One of the main characters is going to be killed off. I reckon it will be Ron (the boy with red hair) because he is really dull. Anyone got any better suggestions?

    Death Verse

    I used to look for typos in the "poems" in the "Deaths" column of my local rag. One I remember is: Ours is just a simple prayer May God keep you in his car Another one (not a typo, but funny anyway because it doesn't rhyme): If roses grow in heaven, Lord Pick a bunch for me Place them in my mother's arms And tell her they're from us Anyone know any more?

    George Clooney

    Link here: http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/entertainment/t...dio/4375602.stm I reckon he did consider suicide but won't admit it for fear of upsetting his fans.
